But I'm hoping for the best! The powerplay should be markedly better, in any case.
One big difference though is that Gretzky & Hull were united via in-season trade. And I personally believed at the time that Gretzky thought he would end up in New York first.
Richards has known for a good while that he was gonna be a Blueshirt for a long time & he has a whole offseason to focus as well as to be prepared.
Nothing is guaranteed, but I would like to believe that these 2 producing & the goaltending performing at high levels are now officially the least of our concerns.
